This alert is thrown when an SSL client is trying to connect with SSLv1 or SSLv2 and is having problems with the handshake.  Some possible solutions would be to upgrade QIE to java 1.8 to see if this will fix the problem.  If this does not fix the problem, then the connecting system needs to try different cypher protocols when they connect.  One possible solution would be to enable only SSLv3 on the SSL client.
